Like many events in 2020, the IWK Telethon for the Children was unable to be held.
This past June, many Maritimers felt the loss of a tradition that is beloved throughout the regions—the IWK Telethon for Children on CTV. Due to concerns with COVID-19 and risks to the safety of all involved with holding the Telethon, we announced the difficult decision to cancel the event.
But despite these uncertain times, Maritime kids continue to be sick. Their symptoms and illnesses need diagnosing. They need urgent critical care.
When the youth and kids get care and treatment at the IWK, they also get hope. That hope comes from their family, friends, care teams, and you, the donors.
The kids at the IWK still need you. That will never change.
Without Telethon, we launched a fundraising campaign called the Kids Still Need You. In the face of adversity, donors like you stepped up to let us know that you will always be here of the IWK. Thank you for your generous outpouring of support as we continue to navigate this new environment.
